Question about Peavey PRO-12 (00497070) Main / Stereo Speaker

2 Answers

I have bought a Behringer Europower 6000 mixer amp. I have 2 Peavey Pro 15 cabs and a subwoofer for each side. They are all rated at 4ohms. The guy in the shop told me to put the amp into the subs then link the PRo15's off the sub and link the PRO 15's together making a daisey chain of them is that safe to do?

No !!!!... you don't want to go below 4 ohms. Paralleling each sub and the Pro 15 would be like 2 ohms...

With those cabinets, either have a second amp driving the subs from the mono or main 1/4 inch jacks out of the mixer or the other thing is a kludge to series each PAIR, that is series the Pro15's to form 8 ohms and the subs to get 8 ohms and run the 6000 as a split between the A and B. The pan controls would not be useful this way at all.

I would recommend using a seperate amp for the subs.

Whoever that shop is wants you to burn up that unit so they can repair... don't do it... BE VERY careful to ensure speaker leads are solid as that amp can destroy itself if the speaker leads short or momentaarily break... I repair these amps... I know...

Using TRS (balanced audio interconnect cables) go from the main output on the top of the panel to your amp inputs. MAKE SURE the amp is powered from the same receptacle as the mixer to avoid ground bounce and possiblle damage to your units.

Hello Sir, Hi, the amplifier best suited for it would be a Behringer also, the EP2500 would be a match, and the eurolive B815neo speakers, but this cost a lot, any amplifier and a corresponding speaker will do. for your electric guitars or acoustics the GTX30. If you will use your 15" speakers, match it with a right amplifier, you did not mention its watts rating, If your speakers are 250 watts, then buy an amplifier slightly higher that 250 watt,

You are correct. The impedance will be too low for that mixer. The answer to the question is no.

180 watts mixer/amplifier and 400 watts speakers


Hiya, they are thermally or DC protecting. You will have to add some extra cooling if you can, external fan etc. Bottom line is you are going to have to crank it down a tad or increase amps and speakers. If its DC protection, its because the distortion levels are 2 high. Very easily achieved with mics not compressed. Again, try tone them down a tad.

Hope that helps

You would need a 2 or 3 way crossover, depending on whether or not you biamp your tops. Simply go out of your main outs on the mixer into the input of the crossover. Go from the low output of your crossover to your low power amp input (subs), and the high output of the crossover to the high power amp input (tops). Then go from your outputs of your amps into the speakers themselves.
